BACK TO THE CORE OF HAUTE COUTURE


-with Azzedine Alaïa, who just showed his first much anticipated Haute Cou- ture show in eight years.

Alaia is a couturier/designer who doesn´t need to reinvent the big wheel every season, but edit and refine his clothes to perfection.

He sets his own agenda. He takes his time and doesn´t show before he is rea- dy and have something to show. As a Couturier, Alaïa is in the same leaque as Madame Gres and Balenciaga.

I have to say, that I really like his approach to his metier. . . That´s how the world of Haute Couture  should be. I wouldn´t mind working for him.
